Great Company, Great People, Great Place to Live and Work.
Now Hiring:
CNC MACHINIST
OPPORTUNITY OVERVIEW
Nexen Group, Inc. is currently seeking key individuals to be CNC Machinists at its Webster, Wisconsin Manufacturing Facility. This is an organization with a very skilled workforce, a can-do culture, and an excellent reputation. There is almost no turnover, however several longstanding employees are retiring, creating amazing new opportunities. Nexen is a premiere employer in the region, with excellent pay and a full and generous benefits package.
The right person will be attracted to the company's values, its people, its locale and the intricacies of machining. This position will be challenging, rewarding and stimulating.
THE COMPANY
Nexen is a recognized leader in the design and manufacture of precision motion control devices used by diverse industries worldwide. Major company products include clutches, brakes, linear motion and braking systems, and other devices for the industrial motion control market.
Nexen is a privately owned, customer-driven and employee-focused company. Its continuing expansion and profitability has largely been due to the success of its workforce in anticipating and meeting marketplace needs. Nexen is proud of the quality initiatives of its manufacturing groups and the product innovations of its engineering and R & D groups. The company holds over 120 United States and international patents.
The company is financially strong and over 100 years old! It was founded in 1902 to make wagon and truck boxes. After World War I, it began producing mechanical slip clutches for small printing presses and later adapted this patented technology to controlling tension on wide webs of paper on papermaking and processing machines.
Members of the Schilling family purchased the company in 1951, and over the years, the company grew by listening intently to their customers, developing excellent products and staying intellectually and financially nimble. In 1999, Hutch Schilling acquired the industrial products business, and the headquarters moved from Minneapolis to Vadnais Heights and was renamed Nexen Group, Inc.
The company retains its heritage of innovation, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a restless pace. It has a very stable workforce that is accustomed to a culture of change and high expectations. Nexen is often used as a best practices benchmark by other companies and colleges.
Despite having 125 employees, the company functions informally. It values and rewards team play and results.
THE POSITION
The manufacturing facility has over 80 CNC Machines. It was among the first in the region to have a Mori-Seiki NT Mill/Turn machine. This 11 axis machine has two spindles, a lower turret, a full machining head (with Capto Tooling) and a 100 tool magazine. Two additional Mori Seiki NTs were added in December 2013 at an installed cost of about $1M each. For high precision machining, Nexen uses a Yasda Jig Borer with accuracy to within 40 millionths of an inch, and can inspect to within 5 millionths of an inch.
Nexen was a leader in the area to implement just in time, work cells, focused factories, CIM, ISO, etc. Most of the shop floor employees are technical college graduates, and demonstrate a high level of skill and professionalism. The plant has an excellent relationship with the community and the schools.
The plant is responsible for over 6,000 different products, 25,000 different component parts and maintains over 95% on time delivery. Every employee is an important member of the team that ensures that customers get great products when they need them.
A new person has a lot to learn when they come on board, so Nexen brings them along at a measured pace. They are assigned a sponsor ("big brother") to guide and train them, and answer questions. There is significant training on how to use the business software, quality, safety, inspection, etc. Machining assignments start with fairly easy parts, on previously set up machines. Over time, the new employee will be exposed to different machines, work areas and processes.
The right candidate for this position will quickly find themselves amazed by the sophistication of the processes and systems, and will want to develop their own proficiency. This person will have it in their genes to learn how to operate different equipment, and find better ways to machine. They go beyond just doing what's in front of them, but will seek to make improvements year over year (month over month!).
This individual must be reliable, have a positive attitude, sound machining underpinnings, and be able to "play nice in the sandbox" (have excellent interpersonal skills). The company culture is one of empowerment (independence), pride, thrift, change, and a can-do attitude. This person will help reinforce all of these qualities.
QUALIFICATIONS
This position requires a one or two year technical college degree in Machining. Requires excellent technical, interpersonal and communication skills.
THE LOCATION
This truly is a "Jewel in the North". Northwest Wisconsin is where people come to vacation and play. Burnett County has 508 lakes and 54 rivers and streams. Washburn County has 963 lakes and 56 rivers and streams. There is an abundance of parks, public land, biking, skiing, snowmobile and ATV trails. The boating, canoeing, hunting and fishing is great, and outdoor recreational opportunities abound.
Even though seeing deer, eagles and gorgeous sunsets are commonplace, one will never tire of it. Few people have the opportunity to work where others come to vacation.
